"When the Criminal Finances Act 2017 (CFA2017, also know as the Corporate Criminal Offence) legislation came into effect, we knew as a business that we should take this seriously.  We approached AAB for advice on how we could ensure Interwell was compliant with the legislation, HMRC requirements and customer requests.  We wanted to ensure we could demonstrate Interwell has reasonable procedures to minimise the risk of facilitation of tax evasion and that we were able to provide related assurances to existing and potential customers when tendering for work.  This helped us to stand us out from our competitors and ensure we retained existing customers.  AAB helped identify our Associated Persons and potential risks, by undertaking a detailed business assessment.  Our staff were expertly trained by AAB on the requirements of the CFA2017 to ensure they understood situations when a potential tax evasion risk or opportunity may arise.  A comprehensive report was provided which was talked through with AAB CCO specialists, highlighting areas to be addressed.  AAB proactively assisted in addressing any potential risk areas and ensured a successful solution was implemented in conjunction with our legal, tax and finance teams."
